    Stunden Geschätzte Dauer

This tour takes you around one of the Lofoten islands with the most spectacular scenery in Norway, as well as some of the world’s richest fishing waters. Leknes is located in Vestvagoy, the second largest island. Your coach will ride through the small village of Leknes which is the administrative center of the island, with approximately 3,000 inhabitants. You’ll be passing through rich farmland and beautiful, white sandy beaches on the west side of the island, a dramatic contrast to the cragged, weather-beaten rocks and mountains behind them.


You’ll continue to Borg for a visit to the Lofotr Viking Museum. At Borg archaeologists have discovered a chieftain’s farmstead containing sensational finds, bearing witness to a center of power during the Viking period. The main house is the largest Viking building unearthed, it measures 272 feet/83 meters long and 30 feet/9 meters high. A copy has been built next to the excavation ground and you’ll feel as if you were transported back to the year 900. Before ending the tour you’ll drive up to the viewpoint at Unstad for a panoramic view of the little settlement far below.


Need to Know:

Note: There is a 15-minute walk on a gravel uphill path from the parking lot to the museum and a couple of steps to enter the building. Ramps for wheelchairs are available for some areas.
